I used to visit Oslo regularly and the Christiania was may hotel of choice, in fact i'd rate it as one of the top five hotels I've stayed in around the world, but that was 10 years+ ago. After such a time in the city I was really looking forward to visiting again, but I left feeling really let down.
The positives were the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff; absolutely fabulous and couldn't be faulted, breakfast was excellent and the location by Oslo S & the tram/metro intersections is great.
The negatives are based upon expectations of this type of hotel. The room was dingy and unloved, chippings off the wall, red stains on the carpet (hopefully wine & not blood), fittings missing, cracked tiles in the bathroom. There were no toiletries in the bathroom, I'd expect that from a budget hotel, but here? I showered in the morning but the water was at best lukewarm.
I wouldn't stay here again; how the mighty has fallen!
